Soft Flex Live Design Challenge On Facebook With Pulsar

3:29 PM

This year, I had the extreme privilege of getting to attend the Craft and Hobby Association's big show Creativation on behalf of Soft Flex Company. I got to see lots of cool crafting products and test them through make-it-take-its, take classes on various small business topics, in addition to attending a few key meetings. It was a lot of fun. Last week, I finally got to explore a product line that I found at Creativation from 3 Birds Design, which is part of Pulsar. 


The pendant on the right was the make-it-take-it with thread. On the left, you can see my first attempt at playing around with the pendant (during a live challenge) with Soft Flex beading wire. I like how the rings and the bottom add a jingle effect. I also like how the wire looks compared to the thread. I used Soft Flex beading wire in .019, Yellow Lemon Quartz and Turquoise (a pairing that I really love and want to work with again). But, I wasn't completely satisfied with this first piece, so I made another later in the evening (shown below).

I like this one a lot. I used Soft Flex .019 again. This time, I used Butterscotch Topaz, Citrine, Spinel, Pink Tourmaline and Pink Rhodocrosite. I tested the idea of adding beads at the top, but in hindsight, I think that I would have liked exposing the wire at the top too and maybe adding beads at the bottom. That just gives me something to try next time!
